OBJECTIVE To assess the chondrogenic potential of cells within the synovium. METHODS Explants of synovium taken from various sites in the joint were embedded in agarose and cultured with transforming growth factor beta1 (TGFbeta1) to assess their chondrogenic potential. Isolated synovial cells were also tested for their chondrogenic potential by culturing… CONTINUE READING
